Migrating art: Re-imagining landscapes to promote wellbeing for refugee populations

 

The research was undertaken in the UK in the North West of England with pre and post-natal women refugees who are victims of rape, trafficking, sexual violence, domestic servitude, and other forms of gender based violence and human rights abuses. The research is concerned with painting landscape, through re-imagining places that are therapeutic; the place re-imagined part of their experience of a ‘safe-haven’ or a journey towards safety.
